The lightness of silicon nitride ceramic gives customers an extra level of comfort on their wrist, while the robust qualities provide reliable strength for serious explorations. In design, this dark grey material has been used for the 45.5 mm casebody, patented NAIAD LOCK caseback, and bezel ring.
Elsewhere OMEGA has used contrasting Grade 5 titanium for the bezel body and strap folding clasp, as well as the sand-blasted dial with its anthracite hands and indexes. This particular standard of titanium is favoured by the aerospace industry. While accentuating the watch’s durable integrity, it does so without adding too much weight.
Keeping with the theme, the movement has embraced a dark aesthetic too. The OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8906 in Grade 5 Titanium is an ultra-light creation with a GMT function that guarantees a sublime level of precision and performance. It sits just behind a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The entire watch is water-resistant to 600 meters, in keeping with the Seamaster’s impressive ocean technology.
OMEGA’s ability to continuously innovate and improve the precision of their timepieces have made them the watch of choice for so many, from sporting professionals, to the world’s most famous spy. It even became the first brand of watch to be worn on the moon.
